Back to my Michigan story. On Saturday we woke up knowing rain was coming. I wanted to pick blueberries while I was there because I like to freeze them for the winter. So we headed out to Paw Paw to a patch but the rain clouds were coming too.
We headed out and the rain shower quickly approached, but it didn't slow us down. We hit a very neat Antique shop and I found lots of goodies for my new red kitchen.
After some more shopping we headed home to rest. All of us were ready to stay home and be lazy......like the cat (Simon).
Sunday morning it was time to head home. We always hate leaving, but if we must leave we take our time and make some stops along the way. We stopped first at a fruit stand to get Mom and Dad some more fruit. The peaches were fabulous too (tell me again why I live in IL?? on yes.....we have corn and soybeans). After that we headed to St. Joe Michigan. This little town is just darling, I want to live there too.
We all jumped back in the car and headed to downtown. From the bluff at that mini park we could see the pier and lighthouse so we wanted to head that way. Windows down Romeo really loved the drive.
The water was really rough today so the pier was closed. If you look at this picture we took you can see why. I think St. Joe's lighthouse is my favorite of all I've seen in MI so far. I know there are more I have not seen and hopefully I'll get to see more of them. But even if I can't, I will keep going back to the towns I love.
